As part of its policy-making process, the California Medical Association (CMA) allows members to submit resolutions for debate and discussion throughout the year. These resolutions will be considered by the standing Councils and Subcommittees, and will be presented to the Board of Trustees for consideration to be adopted as policy for the association.
There are now 14 new resolutions open for consideration in the fourth quarter of 2018.
After testimony closes, the resolutions and all the testimony will be forwarded to the appropriate CMA council or subcommittee for consideration. Member testimony and feedback will be considered by the councils and subcommittees as they make policy recommendations to the Board of Trustees. The trustees will then take action on the recommendations at their next meeting in the first quarter of 2019.
Please click here to access the discussion portal for year-round resolutions. You will need to log-in with your CMA web account. Before providing testimony, please take a moment to read any background materials and/or analyses, which can be found in the upper right corner of each resolution page.
How to submit a resolution
If you are interested in submitting a resolution for consideration in the first quarter of 2018-2019, the submission deadline is October 16, 2018. You are encouraged, however, to submit resolutions well in advance of the deadline to ensure that your policy idea is considered promptly. Submit resolutions for consideration at www.cmadocs.org/resolutions/submit.
Please read the guidelines before submitting a resolution. Resolutions that do not follow the guidelines will be rejected.
